Finish to Report and Retreat
So my local retreat started Thursday. We arrived at 3pm. It's at a church camp type lodge in South Bend Indiana this time. The downstairs has a HUGE kitchen and the upstairs has the dorm room type setup. There were 14 of us. We split up the meals and each are in charge of one meal. I was in charge of Saturday lunch. We had delicious meals. Things like soup, casserole, lunch meat sandwiches, and yummy desserts of course. We also had a huge snack table with the important things like chocolate. Friday my friend and I ran to House of Stitches which is my favorite stitching store in Laporte Indiana. It was only 20 mins away. I got a few things and I needed a few threads. Thursday I had started the sled piece and of course didn't have the threads I needed for it. After that trip out we did nothing else. I literally woke up took a shower and put my lazy pants back on and sat and stitched the entire time. One night we stayed up till like 2am. I just love laughing and sharing with my stitching friends. Saturday I finished the sled and picked up the butterfly to work on. I got a lot done and picked on my hubby for picking me up before I could finish it haha. Saturday evening we did a grab bag exchange and it went fantastic. I got this really cute Halloween pattern that I can't wait to stitch. It was a fantastic relaxing weekend. Now I'm ready to stay home for a little bit haha. No overnight stays planned till December haha.
